I'm author and writing coach Kevin T. Johns.

It took me eight long years to craft my critically acclaimed debut novel, The Page Turners.

The experience was frustrating, heart-breaking, and emotionally draining.

It's physically and spiritually painful to know you have a novel within you, but not know how to get it out!

You've probably had similar experiences with your own writing.

Writers blockAs artists and creative people, we've all been there.

Many writers have even accepted this struggle as a natural part of the creative process.

But what if it doesn't have to be that way?

What if there was an easier path for a first time author to take?

Just imagine...

  • Approaching your writing feeling confident and motivated, not scared or intimidated.

  • Completing and publishing your book, and then finally placing it in a loved ones hands.

  • Being able to call yourself a professional writer and a published author.

  • Transforming your writing "hobby" into a source of income for you and your family.

  • Seeing your book on a shelf next to a book by one of your favourite authors.

  • Taking steps to turn your dreams of literary success into reality starting today, not someday.

The Pain-Free Route to Writing a Book and Becoming a Published Author

When it came time to write the sequel for my first book, I wasn't willing to spend another 8 years struggling to get it done.

I became obsessed with productivity. I deconstructed my work-flow, eliminated everything that was slowing me, and then sequenced the remaining steps to produce maximum results.

I took the vast project of writing a novel, and turned it into an organized system that propelled me past the road blocks that hold up so many writers.

I wrote my second novel in 8 weeks, NOT 8 years.

And YOU can do it too!

As your writing coach, I'll make sure you achieve your dream of writing a novel.

What happens during a coaching session?

Coaching sessions are personally tailored to suit your unique and specific needs.

We'll work together to identify challenges and roadblocks that are holding you back, and to identify resources and protocols to help you overcome them.

I'll help you maintain focus and provide accountability to meet those word count goals.

I'll share my publishing industry expertise to help you choose the publishing route that is best for you, be it independent publishing, e-publishing, or going with one of the big 5 New York publishers.

I'll share exercises and prompts you can use to sharpen your writing skills and stimulate ideas.

Still formulating your novel's concept? I'll work with you on story development. Need feedback on your first draft? I'll provide actionable feedback for revisions. Ready to seek a literary agent for representation? I'll work with you to craft a query letter agents will love.

Your needs, goals, and preferred learning methods are always the focus of our sessions.

Kevin provided excellent insight on my middle-grade fantasy book, and was meticulously prepared each coaching session with helpful and actionable insights. His love and passion for writing spilled over into how he worked with me, and I could tell that he really wants to see me succeed. He helped me find gaps in my story structure, and think through many ways I could improve my narrative.

Kevin’s enthusiasm to get your story told is contagious. You cannot help but get inspired to keep on writing and all the way he is your guide, mentor and your friend. He makes the impossible seem possible and when you feel stuck he’ll make sure the block you’ve reached will be removed. I never thought getting my story down on paper would happen, but thanks to Kevin the first draft of my book is now near completion. Thank you Kevin.

I was looking for someone to kick my butt into gear when I saw Kevin on twitter, and he did just that! I went from not writing at all to getting down over a thousand words a day!

Kevin was great to work with because he is full of resources and knowledge, and he really believes in finding specific solutions that uniquely fit you and your life.

Thank you, Kevin!
